Hey again guys, I'm looking into buying a Bigfoot or like camper for the back of my truck. As far as I know they do not require a state plate. I drive a 97 Dodge 1500 5.9 4 speed 2wd.

In Texas slide in's don't require registration or titles. As to being worth it? Honestly not for most people. It really depends on how much you use it doesn't it?

Depends. Is going to on your truck full time while you are traveling the country? Is it going to be a "weekender" and stored on your property when not in use? Most of the RV parks I've either stayed at or lived in will not them sit there without being on your vehicle. IF I were to spend that kind of cash, I'd just buy a towable and eat the registration costs.

Math & motels is not my strong suit, but how many weeks/months/years would it take to make that pay???
It usually pays off immediately. RV payments are usually cheaper than room rental. If you keep it up long enough you get a free RV.

I was banking 3k a month, just on per diem, after meal and lodging were paid.
It can happen quick.
